: what do. the next move is for syria? -- what do you think the next move is? guest: the top general in britain said they would be considering a move there. there's a conversation but in washington and other international capitals of their needs to be something done. winter is coming. you may not know this, but winter in syria is quite cold. those who have been displaced from their homes, there is, i think, 35,000 casualties in the 19th month of this civil war. host: here's a tweet from david cameron. given what you have just said about syria, could there be pressure from our allies to make a bolder move in syria? guest: the u.s. is already doing something. it does not seem like there is additional pressure. the rest of the u.s. allies, turkey, they are afraid of getting involved. the only pressure, or the most active countries right now we're probably -- are probably qatar and saudi arabia. we have troops and special forces along the border who are vetting who those bombs get delivered to. it is unclear exactly what the status of that is right now, but i do not feel that allies, as
peaceful protests. obviously the situation in syria has deteriorated since then. we have been engaged to help the opposition. we have committed to hundreds of millions of dollars of humanitarian aid to help folks both inside of syria and outside of syria. we are constantly consulting with the opposition on how they can get organized so that they're not splinters and divided in the face of the onslaught from the assaad regime. we are in very close contact with countries like turkey and jordan that immediately border syria and have an impact and obviously israel which is having already grave concerns as we do about, for example, movements of chemical weapons that might occur in such a chaotic atmosphere. and they could have an impact not just within syria but on the reas a whole. i'm encouraged to see that the syrian opposition created an umbrella group that may have more cohesion than they had in the past. we're going to be talking to them, my envoys are going to be traveling to various meetings taking place with the international community and the opposition. we consider them a legiti
next door in syria. you have a different government in egypt and the morrisey government is reacting differently than perhaps the mubarak government did before. >> what's the short-term solution then? >> well, i think the danger for israel for example, it has a right of self-defense, but obviously if it decides to return ground troops to gaza the optics there work against israel in a much -- in a region that now is governed far more by populism than by authoritarianism. i think it has to make sure that its response is aggressive, tries to deal with the threat to israel's people, but doesn't go too far. >> let's talk about the united states' potential role. health care was president obama's defining achievement for his first term. when we look at a second term will the president look at middle east peace, the road map to peace might this be his big deal for his second term? does it need to be? >> i think that's part of the motivation here. you know, you have coming up the palestinian authority which of course controls the west bank but not gaza is preparing to try to move toward enhan
in gaza. we are going to put that into the mix. here is serious, syria, that war has been raging for 20 months now. now it is starting to spread to other areas. turkey has a refugee issue as will some other areas. jordan, down here, israel and lebanon. this map here, what is your concern? >> welcome one of the things we worry about now are all 20 months of this, this would eventually become a regional conflict. a broader conflict in one confined to syria. we find that happening to some extent. we see strikes in turkey and violence crossing into lebanon. we see a massive outflow of refugees into turkey and lebanon and jordan. of course, iran is also involved in this conflict as well. this is one of the big concerns that the u.s. has had all along. bill: okay, i want to put a rock into this mix. i want to put talk about damascus. how does this factor in? >> welcome is syria has long been, as you said, but ron's only ally in this region. they used syria is a place to connect with proxies like hezbollah or islamic jihad. it will be a major strategic blow for ron and will really constrain th
. moss. there's a civil war in syria. should the united states be doing more to help the opposition to the syria government? >> no, i'm the peace and prosperity candidate, and peace is peace on earth, not just in the lower 50 or 48, and i am opposed to war because it creates more problems than it solves, and things can be settled peacefully. there's one example going back to the nuclear menace that the f-35 represents. if i'm elected, i would create a new federal department by merging two existing ones, namely, it would be called the department of social and national security. social being the partners, and then that's fully funded. the rest goes to the national security. i'm not afraid of attacks us. >> moderator: mr. sanders, syria? sanders: i not only voted against the war in iraq, but the ethics voted against the gulf war, and after two wars, 6,000 soldiers, costs us over $3 trillion added to our national debt. no, i do not think that we should be involved in the caring of syria. assad killed tens of thousands of his own people. it's appropriate that we arm the rebels, but do it
's trying to bring an end to syria's civil war. the country's official news agency says a one-day meeting it was held in tehran to try it get syria's government and opposition leaders on the same page. but it is not clear that any major rebel or exile group attended the meeting. most of the opposition does not trust iran because it's a key ally of syria's president. many think the conference's reaction to the formation of an opposition group coalition to oust bashar al saud. >> eric: the ceo of black elk energy, which owns an oil rig, has identified a found body is one of two contract workers missing since friday. black elk energy will continue to search for another worker who is still missing. four workers who were burned are still hospitalized. the company says that no oil is leak from this platform. federal investigators looking into a deadly parade accident in midland, texas, say a warning signal sounded 7 seconds before the float collided with the freight train on thursday. it was the second of two floats that crossed the tracks. the first did clear safely. ntsb found no problems wit
, the opportunity for this to flourish. all-around, our region, from syria these days to hezbollah, hamas in the recent weeks, and always iran in the background -- we see all of the region looking at the united states as a source of support and hope against the bad guys, whoever they are, all around the region. we are highly appreciative. we always keep the right to defend ourself by ourselves when it is needed, but i think the role of the united states is invaluable in our region. we are looking for -- we do not desire war. we pursue peace. but unfortunately the neighborhood is extremely tough. no place for the fainthearted. there is no second opportunity for those who cannot defend themselves, no mercy for the week. we see this daily in syria and in other corners. but we are determined to flourish in spite of all of these developments. we are determined to make israel stronger and more secure. we will always stretch one hand to look for any opportunity to knock on any door, open any window, to find a way to make peace. we will always be ready with -- ready to pull it if it becomes ultim
from syria where ten children are said to have been killed when a cluster bomb landed close to where they were playing. it's not the first alleged use of cluster units by the regime of president bashar al assad. it may be one of the most appalling. >> reporter: these disturbing images show what happens after a children's playground is hit, according to activist, by a cluster bomb. refugees with nowhere else to hide, apparently hit by a single deadly device dropped by a jet. some cluster bombs released smaller explosives to cause maximum devastation against softer targets. what do these children have to do with anything, yells one man? at least ten children killed, according to activist, who said they found the remains of the bomb around the tiny village of deir al assafir. cnn can't verify his pictures or claim that cluster bombs were used. but activist images from the scenes show cluster munitions. but activists say civilians have been hit before when the regime has responded to key rebel successes like at this important air base not far away. >> there is no logic at all attacking s
in syria. lisa sylvester's monitoring that and some of the other top stories in "the situation room" right now. so what's the latest? >> wolf, syria's president bashar al assad is insisting he will "live and die in syria" his country offers him safe passage for ending the civil war. the conflict is so bad that the head of the international red cross today said it is unable to cope with the deteriorating humanitarian situation. opposition forces say at least 64 people died today alone. and cnn called the presidential election late tuesday night and yet florida still isn't red or blue. election officials in miami-dade county finished counting absentee ballots today and have 2,800 provisional ballots left to process. the election supervisor says they should be done counting by tomorrow afternoon with 97% of the state's vote in president obama leads by 47,000 votes. could puerto rico become the 51st state? residents voted on the island's status as a commonwealth tuesday. and for the first time a majority said they favored statehood. it is a nonbinding referendum, but it compels congress to mak
the situation in syria that is so violent and i think israel knows that it wants to be careful not to let this out of hand. and so maybe this three party, i agree with martin, this three-party agreement could be very important and maybe a sign that in his second term president obama is going to get more engaged in the peace process. there has been talk of sending president clinton as a mideast envoy. i thought that was an intriguing idea. but at least i think this is -- these are all very good signs for the situation. >> e.j., stay with us, and martin fletcher, thanks to you. i want to bring in senator chris koonce. senator, good morning. >> good morning 0, chris. >> the senate did unanimously pass that resolution standing by israel, something you co-response arored. what do you think hillary clinton brings to this now? >> well, i think secretary clinton moving to the middle east to stand by our most important ally, israel, is an important signal of our engagement to unanimous ly r reaffirm the right for self-defense and for us to support systems like iron dome which is made possible and
to run roughshod over radical fundamentalists. these same people are working on syria. apparently flush from success in libya, the administration is preparing to ratchet up the war in syria. why? would qatar our partner in libya be supplying weapons to syria without the support of this administration in nato, meaning the u.s., discusses putting missiles in turkey which creates a detack toe no-fly zone over northwestern syria, expanding the war. is this why we need a tax increase? more money for more war? really? the speaker pro tempore: the time of the gentleman from ohio as expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from new york seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. >> i rise to con garage late the randolph cardinals on their victory in the title game at the carrier dome in syracuse, new york. led by head coach and the most valuable player cody aldro, the cardinals won. mr. reed: it is with pride we recognize the coaches, administrators and most importantly the parents and kids for thei
, but neither do i see it as very helpful in pressing russia on issues like iran or their conduct towards syria. russian opposition level leaders, however, and russian civil society, and the russian press, what free press remains in russia today really support this legislation. and i think what this legislation intends is sort of a mutually beneficial relationship with russia based on a rule of law. based on human rights. that's the hope. it includes the sergei magnitsky legislation that came out of the foreign affairs committee of which i am an original co-sponsor, and i do think we owe a debt of gratitude to chairman ros-lehtinen for her determination to have that provision in the legislation. and i think if we reflect on the words of the russian opposition in their parliament, one said recently, this provision is very pro-russian. it helps defend us in russia from criminals. it helps defend us from criminals who kill our citizens, who steal our money, and hide it abroad. and that's the point. that's what we are trying to do with that provision. and this bill liberalizing trade while at the s
. they captured them in syria in the 1967 mid east war. >> more violence broke out in the gaza strip. >> militants have rockets and mortars and israel countered by shelling palestinian positions. >> also announced the defense system knocked out a long range respect palestinian rock. >> in the middle east, they have broken down. >> the u.s. was trying to set up negotiations and will set up the time something wrong for the negotiations due to rising tensions. >> senator dianne feinstein is the target of an antiwar protest this morning. this is in pacific heights. they plan to head to nancy pelosi's house as well. as well as a trip to the golden gate bridge. >> it is guiling a strong movement. and senting a recent delegate to pakistan which included people from the area. >>> after just two months on the job, george entwhistle said he has taken responsibility for a news night broadcast that wrongly implicated a british politician in a child sex abuse scandal. the alleged victim said he was abused by a party official. later, they said it was a case of mistaken identity. >> it is weeks after it was reve
: but the reality the president is facing, you have got the crisis in syria. iran moving closer to getting nuclear weapons. the middle east is a tinder box. a big challenge for this white house. martha: congress vowing to investigate how cia talking points about the attack on the american consulate in benghazi were changed before being made public. general petraeus reportedly told congress that the reference to al qaeda somehow wasn't there inmore in the final version but he doesn't know what happened. top republicans are calling this a watergate-level coverup. >> the narrative was wrong and the intelligence was right. >> we are going to find out who made changes in the original statement. until we do, i think it's unwarranted to make accusations. martha: peter king, chairman of the house security committee. dianne feinstein says we are going to find out who made that change, do you think we are? >> we have to. it shouldn't be the only dpaition of -- shouldn't be the obligation of congress. i don't know why the administration didn't come forward and say these changes were made and why. the longer
unrest in syria, in iran, in the region generally, i think this. during this fight the united states needs to signal that we are going to be with israel and going to be a strong ally from the outset and throughout whatever difficulties may arise. martha: anyone who has watched the situation knows there has about in the past been tensions between benjamin netanyahu and president obama. is that perhaps why hillary is the one to go or is it too early for presidential involvement. >> i think it's too early. she is there to set the stage for things likely to come. we saw the president come out and issue a rather trapbg statemenstatement of support for israel. the increase in the amount of rocket fire coming from gaza, you had hillary clinton now set to meet with benjamin netanyahu, i think trying to do two things, basically, the first she wants to avoid a ground war. i think the united states government doesn't want to see this progress or escalate. second, i think she is trying to buy the united states a little wiggle room and flexibility when it comes to the bigger issue of iran and mi
in just a few minutes time for more on that vote. the u.s. state department has con determined syria for launching another assault on its people. the communication shutdown comes as fighting forced today h damascus airport to close thursday night. is now the time for the international community to adopt a tougher stance this we're joined by madeleine albright, former u.s. secretary of state. madame secretary, thanks very much for joining us. >> good to be with you. thank you. >> we'd like to know straight away whether it's time now for the international community and especially the u.s. toed a don't a tou to adopt a tough every stance with regard to syria. >> i'm sure the international community and the united states are taking -- paying very close attention to what is going on and they have been taking pretty tough instances in terms of making clear support for this coalition of the rebel groups and also in terms of looking at what turkey needs and generally how to make clear that the international community believes that saddam hussein's -- sorry, that bashir assad's time is over.
the subject of the same subject as syria becoming more -- speculation for example the united states is going to get more involved and give arms directly to the syrians. that is another part of this. >> if you look at the entire middle east in 18 months we have gone from a stable pro-american middle east and unstable chaotic and many cases anti-american middle east. syria is one of the few countries in the world you don't worry about being too powerful too week because it fits with a par -- [talking over each other] connell: give arms to the people fighting the syrian government? >> give them arms and they could be used against you. what the united states should do is first of all provide humanitarian assistance. a lot of refugees. those refugees, it is a tragedy but they moving to the neighboring countries and spread, the other thing we could do is work with the rebels. are there any groups in the rebel groups that are pro-democracy? those rebels, this is not george washington at valley forge. these are not necessarily people who want to establish a democracy and rights of all individuals. d
look at what the israelis have done with syria and they have taken out a leader of hamas. we see there is sabre rattling in iran and egypt is threatening to get involved are we on the brink of war? >> the israelis recognize theyor their own. i think they have little confidence in the obama administration to stand by them. they are pursuing their opponents. they have just eliminated an important one in hamas and hamas has been a terrible thorn in their side, has been threatening them, been conducting operations against them and this is a strong message to hamas that, you know, we are at you. you know, we will escalate this. i think -- they recognize this is the only message that hamas will understand. >> sean: if we can, tony, i want to rerack what we just played here. they videotaped this attack on jabari. you know, you can see the yellow circlesarn the car, that's the car he is in. and if i am an extremist and watching this, i am thinking, you know, those are israelis, they are pretty tough with their defense. >> i gotta tell you, it's a good shot. that's when we should be doing
in syria. but you can be sure that the israeli defense forces are watching that northern border very, very closely right now. >> harris: jonathan hunt, thank you very much. in addition to rockets, israel and hamas are also battling each other on-line. the israeli defense force has consistently and constantly updated its official twitter account since this conflict began. one tweet reads, quote, we recommend that hamas operatives whether low level or senior level, show their faces above ground in days ahead. the militant wing of hamas responding with its own tweet. quote, our blessed hands will reach your leaders and soldiers wherever they are. you opened hell gates on yourselves, end quote. and all of this is going on despite twitter's policy against direct specific threats of violence. >>> you've been hearing about it. economic crisis just a few weeks away potentially if lawmakers don't do something about it. president obama meeting with congressional leaders from both political parties to try to get them back from the brink. if they can't reach a deal by new year's day, tax also go up, d
stadiums, no mas. >> paul: they briefly, is the u.s. going to intervene in syria? >> no sign of it yet, but before the election didn't want to touch it, but-- >> that's it for this edition of the journal editorial report. thanks to my panel and all of you for watching. i'm paul gigot, see you right here next week. ♪ >> on fox news watch, i hear you have some questions for me. >> president obama on his first post election news conference taking on tough issues and tough questions from the white house press. >> congratulations, by the way, i've never seen you lose. >> well, maybe not such tough questions, but i did get testy when asked about the white house spin and the benghazi terror attack. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> the president of the united states did not tell the american people the truth about the attacks that took four grave americans' lives that went on for eight, seven hours for which we were totally unprepared. >> how did the media handle this showdown? a new scandal involving now former cia di
an answer, not a critique of how we ask questions. >> there were questions about fiscal cliff, iran, syria, climate change. >> ben gotti. >> and benghazi. >> i thought it was all right. they covered most of the principle stories of the day or week. wi us most struck by the difference in president obama himself. this was a more confident, relaxed, even assertive president or person than we had seen before. and he staked out his position on taxes. and, then, of course, he rolled it back. >> he was impassioned in his defense of susan rice, something we rarely see from the president. >> right. so winning another four years will do that for you. let's contrast with the loser of the election. that's mitt romney. he hasn't given any interviews or offered any positive forward statements. instead he did a conference call with donors and people were able to listen in and romney was quoted at not directly saying that president obama gave gifts to women, gays, and free contraceptives was very popular with young women. is romney really getting beat up by the press because all he has are these comments
of these conversations. he would have been a crucial advisement, the civil war in syria, all of which are among the pressing foreign policy questions right now. he doesn't need him resigning at this moment. >> let me bring an nbc analyst. you're okay with your ifb and everything? >> yes. >> again, i don't know where to begin. we're hearing that they're talking about speeding the replacement process for general allen in europe. the first thing i thought is, i mean, you have two men among the best, the brightest the most experienced, the most respected in the entire military, how deep is the bench to fill in the pieces? >> well, look, you know, it's a tragedy. loss of petraeus is really a blow to the country. he's an immensely skilled officer. so pulling him at this point is really a problem in this. allen implicated with the same woman indirectly in tampa is astonishing. there's a question, chris, though, about our priorities. we spend $7 billion a month on afghanistan. the two political candidates didn't talk about this war. and now, we become obsessed with the sex life of the cia director and
toward is syria and iran, and that is what they want to be able to concentrate on. if it is ambassador rice who is nominated to the secretary of state, this is an issue that will come up again in the purposes of debate over a nomination and may come up with another nominee as well. senator john kerry has defended ambassador rice and therefore may be asked to explain that if he were nominated. to the extent -- i do think primarily between now and the end of the year, the debate will be focused on domestic, economic, and fiscal issues. host: let's go to foreign policy because "the washington times" as this headline -- scott wilson, do you expect that he does that? troops on the ground? guest: i do not expect troops on the grand. as far as the president would go in syria, the next step is some kind of a no-fly zone. you will start seeing the model that he put in place and advocated for in libya. he is someone who moves incrementally. the next real step is the first plunge into military would be directly harming the rebels. they do not know the rebels that well. they do not want to start s
